The first Iranian ski area in your plan for skiing in Iran would be Dizin Ski Resort.

It is better to go to Dizin as international Iranian ski resort for skiing in Iran at early morning on your second day.

Accessibility to this Iranian ski resort:

Option 1: using Karaj metro station on line 5 (green line) head to north by Chalus road, after about 70 km you have to exit from Chalus road to Velayat rud (ve-laa-yat rood) village, Gajereh (gaa-je-re) and Dizin Ski resort.

Option 2: Get on metro line 3 (light blue); other metro lines 1 (red line) and line 4(yellow line) has also cross with line 3 in Shahid Beheshti Station and Teatr-E Shahr station, then get off on Ghaem metro station and take taxi or Snapp to Dizin ski resort (1 hour and 58 min from Ghaem metro station by taxi) (road: Qaem Blvd- Artesh Hwy- Fasham)

Better to know that option 2 is closer to Tehran than option 1 but most of the time it has been closed due to heavy snow and Shemshak (shem-shak) to Dizin route will block, also option 1 has traffic congestion during Iranian weekend (Thursday and Friday).

Likewise, public transportation is available from Tehran to Shemshak, such as minibuses or buses with Fasham destination for Iranian ski season, the benefit is more affordable than taxi, you have to use east terminal
